Why visit Indonesia in September?        

Well Indonesia is a tropical country located on the equator. This means there is no real winter season, but there is rainfall and that is one thing most people want to avoid when visiting an island. While each island has its own micro climate, some times totally the opposite of other islands, September is a month where most visit worthy islands in Indonesia offer fantastic climate.

It’s a great time to visit Bali as there is minimal rainfall and resort prices are lower than peak tourist months of July-August. If you plan to go climbing Mt. Bromo on Java then September is the perfect month as it offers clear rain free days with a nice breeze.

On Komodo Island September is mating and nesting season for the Komodo Dragons, huge lizards that look like dragons found only on this island. September is also a great time to see orangutans on Indonesian Borneo and in Raja Ampat September offers a good time for scuba diving with an abundance of Manta rays. Raja Ampat is ‘the’ destination for scuba divers and features on most divers bucket lists.

Indonesia Weather in September:

See a volcano that spews Blue Lava!

Yes you read that right! There is a volcano in Indonesia which spews blue lava and burns with blue flames!! Well the blue color is because of the high levels of sulpher present and its best seen at night! You will need to wear a protective mask to visit but it’s totally worth it! The volcano also has a bright blue lake in its crater, but be careful its very acidic!
